National Employability Enhancement Mission (NEEM)
Nationality Employability Enhancement Mission, also known as NEEM or NEEM Scheme is a path-breaking initiative taken by the government of India in collaboration with AICTE. It is one of its kind skill development program which would have the greatest positive impact on providing meaningful employment to the idle Indian Youth and would also be instrumental in providing the industry with the skills that they require.
NEEM Scheme is a program which is modeled along the apprenticeship or on the job training system. This scheme provides priority to underprivileged youth of the society and women. If we go by the policy rules of the scheme we would know that it is quite flexible in providing OJT opportunities to the target audience.
NEEM Scheme is also unique in a sense that it does not complicate the labor hiring process for the Industries. An intermediary called NEEM Agent is responsible for taking care of all HR formalities on behalf of the Industry.
In no way, any industry hiring NEEM Trainee is obligated to offer full-time employment to the trainee, and an offer of apprenticeship is not an offer for employment. However, it’s on the discretion of the hiring Industry If they feel like they can hire the trainee full time. However, this is not an OBLIGATION for the organization conducting the program. Till now many Industries have been benefited by adopting this scheme in their trainee and skills development mix.
We as a responsible agency would urge more and more Industries to come forward and reap big benefits by imbibing and implementing NEEM Scheme.
